Nikolai Bonds, 19-year-old son of Barry Bonds, was arrested Saturday in Menlo Park for allegedly spitting in his mother's face and throwing a metal doorknob at her during an argument, police said. Nikolai Bonds was booked into San Mateo County jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and other crimes after he was arrested at his mother's home in the 1000 block of Valparaiso Avenue, Menlo Park police spokeswoman Nicole Acker said. Bonds later posted $50,000 bail and was released from jail at about 10 p.m. Saturday, said Assistant District Attorney Karen Guidotti. The district attorney's office has not yet received the case from Menlo Park police and no charges have been filed, Guidotti said. A friend of the victim, 45-year-old Sun Bonds, called police at about 10 a.m. Saturday to report the crime, Acker said.
